Lost ability to connect to home network after phone/DSL failure


Recreate your wlan network.
WLAN signal refers only to radio signal between Router and PC no link with your capability to pass-through: wrong password, access list or firewall can block your access with the strongest radio signal.
Check (or recreate ) your credential on your PC.
Check if you can log as admin into your Router.

Desktop works (direct to router), laptops cannot connect


first of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.

make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.
